Belle Haven branch of Menlo Park Library

Educators from Sulphur Creek Nature Center in Hayward will introduce some of their resident reptiles and amphibians at the Belle Haven branch of the Menlo Park Library on Dec. 16 from 1:00 to 2:00 pm. You’ll learn about their natural history and ecology, as well as life cycles, predators and prey, habitats, locomotion, and defense mechanisms.

This program is great for kids in grades K-6, but space is limited. Please register in advance by visiting, phoning, or emailing the library ([email protected]). Due to high demand, preregistered spaces not claimed before 1:00 p.m. will be given to standby visitors.
